Huh, considering that CNBC is largely known for being the financial news wing of NBC, it will entertain me to see how quickly viewers latch onto how broken the US money ladder is.

They re-ran the NBC episodes back in the day, no?

On one hand, it's a bit of a head-scratcher, but the article reminded me they have reality shows like Shark Tank, so I guess it makes sense.

If it follows the syndicated model, it may be pretty decent. I actually enjoyed that version.

Why is the money ladder broken?

Why is the money ladder broken?
Just my own (but I've had this conversation with Mr. Lemon many a time) but there are far too many large money amounts that make the game fairly easy to win a decent amount of money. In Australia and England the money ramps up fairly steeply in the last few cases/boxes and while it is easy to win a few thousand dollars or pounds it does take bravery and luck to win the top prize. The version as seen in The Netherlands is a lottery done a few times per year and so the fact that there are three cases with a million Euros or more doesn't really bother me.

I thought that the board used on our syndicated version most closely approached what I would have done, though I may have even may have had a smaller prize--perhaps $200,000 or $250,000. When winning a six-figure prize doesn't require all that much of any particular characteristic that we desire in our contestants that's a problem.

More info- Show will tape at Universal Orlando, 30 eps ordered, $1 million still top prize apparently, scheduled for "4th quarter" 2018...

I don't think they'll keep the original ladder as well- keep the left side as before, but cut the 6-figure-plus cases from 7 to 4 (say 1K/2K/5K/10K/20K/30K/40K/50K/75K/100K/250K/500K/1M on the right side....), plus I'd think the offers are going to be way stingier....

And this is based on what, exactly?

Not for nothing, but it's on cable.

Interesting that they're using the same board setup considering the probably lower budget for cable- I'd suspect offers are going to be really cheap to compensate, or if they win a large 6-figure prize, it'll be as an annuity like Daytime Millionaire has/had (not sure if they still do that)..
